- A truck caught fire in south Delhi's Malviya Nagar
- The fire spread from the truck to a rubber godown
- 30 fire engines are at the spot, trying to battle the blaze
It is the highest category fire and the fire department has sent more than 30 fire engines to the area to try and bring it under control.
Reaching the spot proved to be very tough for the fire engines as the lanes in the area are very narrow and congested, officials said. One fire fighter has been injured.
The fire department says there is a real danger of the fire spreading from the godown factory to other nearby areas. The fire has already spread to the residential building next to the godown, but it is said to be empty.
So far no casualties have been reported.
The smoke is visible from nearby areas like Saket, Greater Kailash and even from Nehru Place, about 5 km away.
